Experienced relievers provide Brewers depth
PHOENIX -- Brewers general manager Doug Melvin didn't plan to make a bullpen splash over the winter. It just sort of happened.It happened at the Winter Meetings in Indianapolis, where Melvin was focused hard on improving the team's starting rotation. He was working on a deal with Randy Wolf when a reliever -- LaTroy Hawkins -- literally came calling. Hawkins, a free agent coming off a fine year for the Astros, attended the Meetings in person and met with Melvin and other Brewers officials. Melvin was impressed enough to make a two-year offer.
